We have just spent the last week at this resort and have had a brilliant time . We are a family of 5 - having 3 boys ages 4, 10 and 14 were so worried after reading various reviews of what we were going to walk into.
The apartments are basic but we stayed all inclusive and only showered and slept in them - they were clean and had everything we needed - didn't bother hiring a kettle the pan did the job ! Cleaned every other day with fresh towels provided and a seating area outside with a patio.
The pool areas were also clean and the boys really enjoyed the slides, sunbeds were always reserved with towels which was annoying, even pushed my husband out at 6am one morning to find people had already put their towels out the night before ! But always managed to get a couple even if it wasn't in the desired area .
Food was excellent - an all you can eat affair with different choices daily always fresh and plenty to choose from , breakfast pancakes were the boys fave
We found if we arrived there was always a table with very little or no queues, staff working hard to keep tables clean and tidy and always smiling
Snacks at lunch by the pool were basic chips and hotdog and a bit of paella thrown in - but the kids liked the simplicity.
Plenty of drinks available and all great - only queues were after 9pm and it was for no more than 5 mins - there is a 2 drink rule but this didn't bother us and happily can only drink one at a time
Entertainment was fine - more geared for younger children and the team worked so hard with the children all day and offered games by the pool and in the evening the disco was the highlight of our youngest son and we even had to buy the CD !
Staff friendly and always smiling and nothing is a problem
Location not bad - short 10min walk to the beach with water sport options like diving jet ski boat trips or slightly further along the coast another beach with a shopping complex we walked and paid 4euro home in a taxi
Ate out one night in the Wild West steak house - food and service excellent
Market day tues. And sat and offers cheap versions of sunglasses hats jewellery and more
Hotel has a booking agent to book trips if you want to spend a day out and if you tell reception the night before thy will arrange a pack lunch for you if you are out on a trip or the beach !
Wifi is free at the local bar outside complex called the sizzling pig - again cheap drinks and brilliant service
Would I recommend to a friend this holiday - yes !
For what we paid we had value for money and the boys loved every minute, we stayed busiest time and didn't have any problems. Only disappointment were some of the rude visitors who thought they deserved more - quite frankly I was embarrassed and if you want 5 star luxury you need to book a 5 star resort and pay what it costs
This hotel was clean friendly food and service great at a low cost
Don't be out off by negative reviews
